rrying a big old tree, not a cicada on an old tree.

 

“Oh, that’s right.”

 

Dooha, who was trying to drag her husband, stopped walking.

 

Even though the store was within the territory of the Duke, eating without paying was still not right. 

 

Dooha started rummaging through her husband’s pockets with her free arm.

 

“Where the hell did you put your money?”

 

As she struggled to find money, all while being crushed by Leonhart’s weight, she slowly descended her hand.

 

“Is it in the pocket of your pants?”

 

She shoved her hands into the pockets of his pants near his waist.

 

‘Is it this?’

 

She was holding something heavy in her hand.

 

But she was too unfamiliar with the shape or texture for it to be money.

 

“…Ah.”

 

Then, a strong realization flashed through her mind.

 

Dooha lowered her gaze for a moment, then quietly pulled her hand out of the Duke’s pocket.

 

“It’s such a waste.”

 

She took off one of the earrings she was wearing and placed it on the table.

 

Dooha was in a hurry to help the duke and leave the tavern.

 

Her face under the hood was as red as a ripe apple.

“Are you awake?”

 

Contrary to Dooha’s concerns about what she would do if he hadn’t woken when they arrived at the castle, Leonhart had woken up in the carriage. 

 

Although his eyes were rather dazed.

 

“I’m glad that you woke up just before we arrived.
Can you move? ” 

 

“…Yes, I can move!”

 

Dooha wrinkled her brow at his childish tone.

 

‘Is he really okay? Is there anyone who behaves this weirdly because of alcohol?’

 

With an anxious expression on her face, she tapped on her husband’s shoulder.

 

“Then get off quickly.”

 

“Yes!”

 

Leonhart nodded his head slightly before meekly getting out of the carriage.

 

It was then, when Dooha was about to follow him out right away,

 

A large hand protruded out in front of her.

 

Dooha looked back and forth between Leonhart’s outstretched hand and face.
He was acting as if he was her escort.

 

“…What’s going on all of a sudden?”

 

There was no reply from him, but Leonhart did not withdraw his hand and only stared at her.

 

His slightly dazed eyes and red cheeks were somehow appealing.

 

Dooha, who had been hesitating, had no choice but to finally grab his hand and get off of the carriage.
Perhaps it was because it was late at night, when the dawn moon was still in the sky, but not a single person was seen in the castle.

 

Dooha managed to enter the bedroom with the Duke following her blankly.

The moment the door closed, she let out a sigh of relief.

 

She was worried about what would have happened if the Duke lost consciousness again in the middle of their way back and fell asleep, but fortunately, they were able to reach the bedroom safely. 

 

“Whoo.”

 

Dooha threw off her accessories from her body like shackles.

 

As she moved her arms behind her back to take off her dress, she realized there was something strange and slowly turned back.

 

“…What are you doing standing there?”

 

Leonhart stood silently in the middle of the room, looking at Dooha.

 

Contrasting his hazy eyes, his gaze was fixed on Dooha.

 

She slowly pulled her hand off the dress.

 

“You should change first then.”

 

This time, it was the Duke who did not move despite Dooha’s words.

 

‘What?’

 

She thought for a moment and came to the conclusion that it was because there were no attendants to prepare his clothes, and so she walked towards the door.

 

“Wait.
I will bring the servants…”

 

“No.”

 

“No, you should change your clothes…”

 

“Do it.”

 

He stretched out his arms in front of Dooha.

 

It was like he was asking her to take his clothes off.

 

“I beg your pardon? No.”

 

It was before Dooha, who was bewildered, was even able to respond.

 

“No?”

 

The Duke asked her, looking at her with sad, teary eyes.

 

Despite his size, his actions were no different from those of a child.

 

She looked at him blankly.
Dooha couldn’t tell how to deal with this situation.

 

On the other hand, the Duke’s eyes, which had been loosened due to drunkenness, had even a touch of moisture in them.

 

Dooha realized once again how deadly an excessive beauty could be, and eventually, she reached out to him once again.

 

“…Give me your arm.”

 

She eventually had to attend to the Duke’s clothes on this moonlit night.

 

No matter how well Dooha grew up, she was also raised as a princess.

 

It was awkward because it was her first time changing someone else’s clothes.

 

Dooha took off the coat the Duke was wearing and finally unbuttoned his shirt buttons one by one.

 

She obviously thought she had no feelings for him, but when she found herself in this situation, her hands started to tremble.

 

On top of that, she could feel the uncomfortably hot gaze on the top of the head.

 

Dooha deliberately lowered her head and opened her mouth.

 

“Don’t look.”

 

“…No.”

 

“You answered ‘yes, yes’ well before like an obedient child.”

 

Mumbling to herself as if she were grumbling, she hurriedly took off the Duke’s shirt.

 

It revealed his well-trained, sculpted body, but she deliberately tried to turn her gaze away from him.

 

“It’s done now.
Go to bed.”

 

“…I want to take this off, too.”

 

“There’s nothing more to take off…”

 

Dooha’s eyes became as big as pine cones when she saw the Duke pointing his hand to his pants.
